    Max Bemis, the man who gave us the wonderful Say Anything, has been publishing comics since 2013's Polarity, about a bipolar superhero. Today, Jan. 6, marks a new milestone with the first issue of X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever, illustrated by Michael Walsh.

    Here's the official description from Amazon, where the comic is available digitally:

    "Bailey Hoskins has just discovered he's a mutant. For someone who's never been special, never stood out, discovering he's 'gifted' is truly a gift—entry into the halls of Xavier's School for Gifted Children and into the ranks of the world famous X-Men! Unfortunately...Bailey might just be the worst X-Man ever."

    Comic Book Resources gave the book a glowing review, writing, "Bemis' chronicle of Bailey's emotional swings hits home with anyone who's ever been an outcast and who continues feel like an outsider even after finding what they think will make them happy." 

    The most recent Say Anything album was 2014's Hebrews, which featured guest vocalists on every song, among them Tom DelongeSaves the Day's Chris Conley, Every Time I Die's Keith Buckley and Max's wife, Eisley frontwoman Sherri DuPree-Bemis.
